"publishers should be able to make that difference up by saving on printing costs and shipping"
Yet another step towards doing away with the need for human resources. I'm not against this type of technological advancement but damn people are losing jobs. I may push my son into computer programming so he has a way better chance to succeed in the next 12 years.

I can see the DOJ stepping into this and charging them with something.
